11. Gingerbread Madeleines with Molasses Glaze
Intensely flavored, appearing in the form of a moist cake or a crisp cookie, what could capture the holidays better than gingerbread?

The little cakes are still light, but the flavor is bold. The molasses glaze adds a bit of depth and that classic gingerbread bite, but without overwhelming the madeleine. Enjoy!
